When Steve Matthes originally approached me a about writing for his web site PulpMX.com I was understandably excited. I had been a fan of Steve’s stuff for quite a while, and considered it a honor to be asked. A year later, I can sincerely say that I have enjoyed every minute of the experience. It has afforded me the opportunity to meet and interact with some of my childhood hero’s, guys I grew up watching on TV every week. I have also been lucky enough go behind the scenes at some racing events and enjoy access I never would have though possible.
On the writing side, I have had a blast writing all manner of articles for PulpMX. I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to write about everything from a history of motocross, to top ten lists and debates about the greatest races in history. My weekly column Classic Steel, has been particularly interesting, as I get to research all manner of classic bikes every week. Many I knew nothing about the bikes prior to doing my research, so it is just as informative to me as it is to my readers. The only hard part has been locating the information in the first place. There is really no online repository for much of this information and often it has meant digging through endless books and magazines to find the info I need. Even so, it has been a labor of love and I enjoy writing whenever I can find a spare second.
If you enjoy motocross and classic Motocross machines, make sure check out PulpMX.com for my Classic Steel columns. Every week I pick one of the incredible machines that was in Greg Primm’s incredible motocross collection and give you little look back at its history, performance and significance to the sport. I try not to sugar coat anything and give you a realistic account of the bikes strengths and weaknesses. There are also some great pictures of the classic machines, so make sure you check it out.
This week’s Classic Steel is a look back at some of Greg Primm’s awesome classic motocross jerseys.
